Martin Srktel says he feels sorry for Mario Balotelli after the Liverpool striker extended his goalless run this weekend.

The Italy international missed a late chance to help the Reds seal victory during the goalless draw with Hull City at Anfield on Saturday.

Liverpool manager Rodgers kept faith with his £16m signing despite Balotelli’s obvious struggles against Real Madrid in midweek.

And Reds centre-half Skrtel insists that Balotelli is working hard to improve his game on the training ground but isn’t getting his reward.

“He is working hard and showed some good moments [against Hull],” Skrtel said of Balotelli, who hasn’t scored in his last eight games.

“I feel sorry for him. He is working hard in training, he is working hard in the game. He just hasn’t got the goals.

“We just believe in him. We will be supporting him and just hope he will start scoring goals.”

Balotelli scored his only Liverpool goal against Ludogorets after moving to Anfield in August.
